Extended highlights of David Ferrer‘s first Masters 1000 win vs Andre Agassi in Rome!Tennis TV YouTube Channel
This win by a then 21 year old Ferrer was all the more impressive, because he fell to a 6-0 opening set whitewash, before coming out firing in the second set.
Probably the turning point in the match was Agassi missing break point at 5-5 in the second, when he ran around a forehand before firing it into the net on a second serve return. Ferrer recovered to force a tiebreak, which he played basically perfectly to draw level on one set all.
The third set was close and attritional again, but Ferrer seemed to grind Agassi down at 4-4 with relentlessly good scrambling tennis. He won 6-4 in the third set, to announce his arrival on the world scene.
